I use this combo every year. I surround my pool with pots filled with silvervista, bubblegum, and fuchsia. They love the sun and the heat. They fill in quickly, and spill over this sides of the pot. I fertilize weekly and until mid-summer then I fertilize with every watering. They never fail.

I grew this in a large pot on my patio. Was extra ordinary! I bought only one of each plant, and they filled in and were absolutely beautiful. Of course, every time I watered, I also fertilized.

Thank you for letting us know that your combo really lived up to it's name! Our supertunias love to be fed, so fertilizing is the key to beautiful plants! We always love to receive pictures, so if you have some beauties that you would like to share with us, don't ever hesitate to send them our way!

Have a wonderful spring and happy planting!

We live on he bay in NW FL , zone 8B. Should this mix be a successful grower if properly fed and watered?

This combination would be successful in zone 8b if properly fed and watered! Personally, I have planted this combination and I have gotten amazing results in zone 5b!

Happy Planting!

If you want to plant something that is guaranteed to look just like the picture, this is for you. It has been on my porch for at least four summers. I've sometimes planted 5 plants, 2 each of the pink ones and 1 white one. My garden center has also sold this combo in one container that is meant to be just transplanted into a real pot. Three plants are plenty for this size pot. This combo is always perfect!

I have grown this combination in my 20" hanging baskets for 3 years and it's always been a show-stopper. I use smaller plants and add 3 Snow Princess alyssums to this formula. My trick to the beginning stages of growth are to intermingle the branches once in awhile until the branches are a couple feet long. This gives the container the effect of a beautiful color mix. Fertilizing once a week is the secret to creating the largest flower display! Enjoy!
Can't wait to get planting! Louise

Louise,
We are so glad you love this combination and have learned the wonderful 'secret' of intermingling! That is the perfect way to get the look you are wanting. Have fun dreaming of spring!

I planted this in my big hanging basket, (I doubled this for my big basket) and the blooms are prolific! The only thing I would do if I made this again next year is add one more of the Vista Fuchsia.

We love the idea of adding the Vista Fuchsia. Half the fun of gardening is in changing things up year to year! Have fun dreaming of spring!

I had a large pot and planted 1 plant of each. I soon had exactly what the pics show. You will not be disappointed!

You don't need 13. I've done my whiskey barrels for years with the bubblegum pink, and use 4 or 5. If you have good potting soil and fertilizer you will be amazed at how big they get!

Yes! 13 Supertunias should do great in 26 inches! It's the perfect amount!

I'm planting this combo in a 26 inch 1/2 wine barrel and adding 8 more petunias for a total of 13... I wonder if that is too many plants?

We tried this mix this year! We are excited to try it. We put Vista Bubblegum in several combination baskets last year and it was very aggressive, taking over the other plants. We loved the color but obviously needed to do something different. Hoping these three vistas will be the trick!

This basket is stunning! I have used 60 Baskets of Supertunia Vista Bubblegum for a couple of years lining the roadway to my Botanic Garden and Arboretum. But I think I will have to do this Mix this year! It just makes me smile!
